Anganwadi Workers: Anganwadi Workers Protest in Chachal: Seek Pay Hike & Job Avenues | Guwahati News



Guwahati: About 3,000 anganwadi workers, helpers, and mini anganwadi workers from the ‘Assam Rajyik Anganwadi Karmi Aru Sahayik Sangstha’ staged a protest at Chachal in Six Mile on Monday, demanding a resolution to their proposal for increased remuneration and employment opportunities.
Indira Newar, the general secretary of the association, said, “We sent a proposal to the administration on October 19, requesting Rs 12,000 for the anganwadi workers, Rs 10,000 for the mini center workers and Rs 7,000 for the helpers.We were promised that our demands would be met and announced publicly. However, nothing has been done till date.”
She added that majority of the workers are getting an honorarium of Rs 6,500 and are constantly facing a hostile work environment. They would abstain from performing their duties if the administration doesn’t do anything, she said.
Bivash Modi, the director of the Directorate of Women and Children, said, “They provide an essential service to society voluntarily and hence their jobs can’t be regularised. We constantly ask them to join us for discussions instead of staging protests under the banner of Centre of Indian Trade Union (CITU).”
“There are many more social service organizations in the state and if we increase the remuneration amount for a single organization, the others may object. However, new anganwadi centres are opening up in the state. Assam is the first state to provide anganwadi workers a one-time terminal benefit of Rs 4 lakh upon completion of 60 years, Rs 3 lakh to every mini worker and Rs 2 lakh to every helper.”
